Ministry of Loneliness
Daniel Kurt Boehm
Loneliness is a subjectively experienced state. People feel a discrepancy between the relationships they have and those they desire. More than 41 million Europeans often or always feel lonely. For those affected, loneliness means great suffering. It is often accompanied by stigma. They feel ashamed and do not dare to talk about their loneliness. It has serious consequences for physical and mental health. Loneliness harms not only individuals, but society as a whole.
The Federal Ministry for Loneliness has the task of addressing loneliness in the population and taking political action. We teach mental health skills to children, adolescents and young adults. Our anti-stigma campaign aims to make loneliness more visible and understandable. The reasons for loneliness are many and varied, but one thing is certain: many people in Germany and Europe are lonely. We help you so that you are no longer lonely. The Ministry of Loneliness.
